About Bryn

Welcome! I’m passionate about supporting individuals and organizations to optimize their health and well- being, beyond prescriptions. As a medical doctor, I have witnessed that sometimes a prescription is the right answer. And it might be the life-saving solution, but more often it isn’t. Many times we can find better solutions beyond prescriptions. And there are many ways we can focus on prevention.

During the week I work as a family doctor, focusing on the whole person using an integrative approach. I draw on my multi-faceted medical background to provide positive and healing outcomes for my myriad of clients. I am a health and wellness enthusiast, strongly connected with all things related to health, current medical solutions, and overall well-being.

When I’m not working, you might see me and my husband corralling our rambunctious twin boys outdoors for an activity or adventure—rain, snow, or shine, winter and summer.

Lifestyle Medicine

I’m not selling you anything here, but my hope is to sell you on something … anything lifestyle medicine. Why? Because our lifestyle can be our best medicine, a tonic always within our reach. But it can also be our largest obstacle preventing us from being well. My patients have shown me firsthand the positive impact that lifestyle medicine can have on our health and well-being. For my own healthcare, and my families’, lifestyle medicine is our first choice and a top priority!

Here’s a hard truth: our lifestyle can be a significant factor in the development of a chronic disease. And our habits can be the most difficult things for all of us to change.

Change is always possible, but it’s not always easy. It’s a step-by-step continuum that sometimes feels like two steps forward and one step back. But with the best knowledge, tools, and hacks, I believe it’s the way to a fulfilling and healthy life.

Our activities can turn off or on the expression of our various genes. These activities are centered around the five core pillars of lifestyle medicine.

One cold and wet day, I was at an integrative medical clinic and a large, brightly-coloured chalk board in the waiting room read: “Winter is not cold and flu season. It is a deficiency of sunlight, fresh air, and Vitamin D season.”This got me thinking: Why do we get more colds and flus in the [...]

Summer is here, and that means outdoor fun and adventures are calling. The forests and mountains beckon with their tranquil solitude and cooling shade on hot summer days.

April 3rd, 2023|News|

If you’re a woman, you’ve likely been encouraged to be a caregiver. Whether you’re a mother, daughter, friend, supporter, or helper, you’re probably a caregiver to at least one other person, maybe many others, including other women. Have you heard the saying coined by UCLA social psychologists that women “tend and befriend”? Translation: we [...]
